Availability: Out of stock



Chandler's first novel introduced private detective Philip Marlowe, and THE BIG SLEEP set the standard for private detective movies.

Down-at-the-heels private eye Marlowe gets the assignment to clean up after the daughters of a dying millionaire, but dead people have a nasty habit of trailing in their wake. The famously tortuous story line (Hawks supposedly asked Chandler to clarify a plot point about the murder of the family chauffeur; the novelist hadn't a clue as to who did the deed) seems beside the point when Bogart and Bacall are onscreen.

The final release was recut to include more of their scenes together. A must! Remade in 1978.
